Beer market of Kazakhstan acquired both traits of East European countries and South Eastern Asia taking a transitional position between them by many criteria and consumption style. Yet there is a positive trend in beer production which differs Kazakhstan from most of the neighboring countries. The market has remained consolidated in the hands of two international players because of its small size. However, it faces dynamic processes such as fast growth of draft beer sales, up and downs of regional companies and Carlsberg Group’s ultimate expansion. Excessive mainstream segment has declined over the recent years, yet, Zhigulevskoe and national brands with regional links have yielded their positions to a range of new products. In our review special attention was paid to regional analysis of the markets. In 14 regions of Kazakhstan we compared the companies’ positions, the market price segmentation and DIOT channel development. Besides we have compared the beer market of Kazakhstan to neighboring countries. ...

Ukrainian beer market 2018
- Better than yesterday
- Performance by value
- Positions of Ukrainian brewers
The beer market dynamics in Russia is approaching zero, yet major brewers are divided into those who developed considerably in 2017 and those who considerably reduced their volumes. For instance, company Efes has managed to substantially extend their sales due to restrained pricing policy and activity in the modern trade. Heineken has also demonstrated an excellent performance promoted by significant increase of advertisement budgets launching a non-alcohol sort of the title brand and unusual activity in the economy market segment. Carlsberg and AB InBev have been focusing on margins and lost a market share of their inexpensive brands. Serious dependence on PET package and mass enthusiasm about Zhigulevskoe have negatively impacted the most of big regional brewers, that have been for the first time pressed by the leaders in the key sales channels, especially in Volga and Central regions. In the small business there has been a noticeable slowdown in appearing of new restaurant breweries, yet the number of craft breweries has been growing rapidly. In 2018, the beer market is likely to grow a little, while the share of AB InBev Efes may decrease due to the integration. ...
MillerCoors may have to halt Minnesota sales
MillerCoors, the second largest brewer in the United States, failed to get its brand license to sell 39 brands in Minnesota renewed before a government shutdown over a budget impasse began with the new fiscal year on July 1.
"Without that brand label registration, their distribution and sales aren't allowed to continue," Doug Neville, a state public safety department spokesman, said.
The registration allows the manufacturing, distribution and sales of the MillerCoors brands in the state, meaning that they would also have to be pulled from liquor stores, bars and restaurants where they are sold, Neville said.
"We reached out to MillerCoors to talk to them about their brand label registration being expired and requested from them a plan to discontinue distribution and sales of their products in the state," Neville said. "We are hoping within a couple of days to have a clear idea what that looks like."
Samuel Adams brewer Boston Beer Co Inc's (SAM.N) registration is good until the end of the year, according to a company spokeswoman. Budweiser brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev (ABI.BR) did not have an immediate comment.
MillerCoors spokesman Julian Green said on Wednesday the company was working with the state to resolve the situation.
"With 39 brands at stake in one of our largest markets in the country during the most important selling period, in the summer, we do not take the business of ensuring proper state licenses lightly," Green said.
Green said MillerCoors had filed paperwork to renew the three-year brand licenses by the June 13 due date, actually overpaying initially, and submitted a second check by June 27. The renewal was never issued and neither check was processed, he said.
The renewal fees amount to $30 per brand, or $1,170. MillerCoors' beers range from Miller Lite and Coors Light to Blue Moon, Peroni and Pilsner Urquell.
"We believe it is unfortunate that we and other state licensees including retailers and other brands are being impacted by the state shutdown when we followed all applicable laws," Green said.
